Bought LG Google Nexus 5 in January 2015 online through snapdeal. Now in 8 months time, the battery is malfunctioning. The charger has stopped working and the battery takes anytime between 3 to 12 hours to charge. It varies, strangely. I have tried charging it without using at all, wifi and data off and also switching off the mobile. But the result is same. Don't buy this product.
Nexus 5 is worst phone i used ever. A mobile phone is not based on only android updates, there are lots of other things which are also important for a good phone. Firstly nexus 5 get very much heated if i used it more than 5 minutes and very bad battery backup. I bought it only a month ago and i thought that i have wasted my money on this damn shit, i have lot of more options like one+one,iphone etc but seriously i m mad that i bought nexus 5.
its very agile phone,very good performance,nice display and very light but could be better if equipped with better speakers,it has only one speaker so the sound quality is poor but everything else is very good
I got my nexus 5 in march. So its 5 months old. Lately its been acting funny. It keeps turning WiFi off , not responding when charging and even shuts itself off when charging. My husbands also does this and his is the same age. Anyone else has this issue ?
Expect more updates soon... Apparently there is a way round the fix that Google has issued meaning we are still vulnerable.. Read it on BBC news.

This bug leaves a massive vulnerability recently detected in which your device's personal data can be accessed by someone with just your mobile number. This big has been found to affect 99% of all Android devices (all the way back to Android 2.2 Froyo) and I'd install that update ASAP if you haven't already. You can Google "Android Stagefright" for more information :)
Extremely fragile. Had mine for 3 days, dropped from chair height and screen smashed. Pathetic for a mobile device to be so weak.

Nexus-5 is a good phone with good performance but my phone had display problem soon after one year.
Nor Google or LG is supporting the service of the device, as the warranty of the device is over.
Really a loss of money.

The new touchwiz is smooth and almost lag free.. Talking about the S5, it has double the battery backup than the nexus 5... also, Touchwiz has ample more features than the stock andriod, so few lags can be tolerated...
Also the oneplus one and oneplus two, both are based on cyanogenMod on stock andriod and way better than the nexus 5, whether it be in terms of battery life, performance or anything... The nexus is only good for updates... Else nothing has remained special in the nexus 5....
And what you want to say about the xperia series? The timescape UI neither lags nor there is any con found in it... Better than the nexus 5....

Latest software and galaxy s5 is not better as it's touchwhizz crap and laggy. This phone was on sale at half the price of galaxy s5 when I got it well over a year ago so cut your winging and whining just because flip kart is ripping you off.
I hate nexus devices they give small battery capacity and a large screen which takes all the juice.Oh and useless without a micro sd slot.
I have this like more than a half year, and no complains at all. Ofcourse you have to charge it every night, but thats it. Every stuff i give, it handles very smooth, without any lag. Also its pure android, with latest updates and stuff what i like the most. True phone with outstanding performance and goood screen and size. Who complains about memory size, remember, its phone from google, all space you need is on internet. If you want to play hudge games you can buy usb OTG, and connect as much memory as you want and play whatever you want. This phone changed my life in good way.
